    I have recently done work experience at the local Government/council and they spoke about doing apprenticeships after you leave school. I have never intended on going to Uni, and am wondering whether I should leave school at sixteen and get an apprenticeship.

    All advice appreciated

    If you've never intended on going to university and would be happy committing to full time work and know what area you want to work in, then they are worth considering. However it requires you already knowing what you want to do.
